LG LF6300 Full HD 120Hz Smart LED TV via Amazon
LG Electronics LF6300 series TV’s are 40LF6300, 43LF6300, 49LF6300, 55LF6300, 60LF6300 and 65LF6300 as part of the LG 2015 Smart TV lineup and they are 1080p resolution Full HD LED edge-lit TV’s with TruMotion of 120Hz, the latest Smart TV functionality including the amazing web0S 2.0 operating system offering enhanced interaction with system and better user experience to make it simple to access your favourite movies and shows and great connectivity inputs including the 3 x HDMI, 3 x USB 2.0, 1 x shared Component and Composite, 1 x Optical Digital Audio Out, 1 x RF, 1 x LAN, 1 x RS232.
The LG 43LF6300 is 42.5 inches measured diagonally, weighs 28 pounds and measures 38.3 x 24.6 x 7.6 inches with stand- has a modern flat but relatively basic design. First of all the TruMotion of 120Hz is not the real 120Hz but more like 60Hz and the TV uses a computer to emulate 120Hz- makes it look like it by doing tricks and flickering lights in the background to move the refresh rate up to 120Hz and we can’t say it is exactly like the real native 120Hz refresh rate but this TV still does a good job with minimising motion blur when you’re watching action movies or playing fast moving video games- it is pretty much what it needs to be for the price level. It has triple XD Engine like other LG TV’s, is Full HD with 1080p resolution (and most content out there at the moment is still HD or FHD) for sharper display and the contrast is really impressive and you’ll be able to pick out details in darker scenes as this TV seems to handle separation of light and dark very well. Picture quality is rather impressive for the price!
The simple interface webOS 2.0 is the latest upgraded operating system by LG and appears to handle games, apps and web browser very well but the browser is not completely Flash compatible so you can’t really play everything there is on the internet and this is something LG and other manufacturers need to get on top off. Otherwise the app interface is quite easy to use with good selections and is quite easy to move from one content, app or program to another with Live Menu and the Launcher, a decent app store of LG, built-in wireless to connect easily with your home network and it has a smart magic motion remote which is probably one of the best on the market and remotes have always been good with LG TV’s, with this model it is only improved- solid, intuitive and easy to use and has an integrated microphone with voice mate technology of LG and it is as easy as using a computer mouse. The webOS interface will even help you with simple things like the first installation and hooking up external devices. It is an Energy Star qualified TV offering energy efficiency with an estimated annual energy cost of $7 (0.3W on standby mode) considering you’ll use the TV 5 hours a day.
Sound quality is good with the Virtual Surround Plus, Clear Voice II and 20 watt speakers for a Smart TV at this price range and will help improve your TV viewing experience. We like the connectivity options, you can connect external hard drives and USB devices easily and most of the inputs are conveniently located on the outside- not at the back except for the Optical Audio-Out that comes out the rear of the TV so if you’re gong to connect it to a sound system and get the TV mounted on a wall then you may have a little problem if it is a flush mount. Component/Composite input is getting a little outdated and there is not a lot of use for it anymore but you have one shared input for the two of them if you need it. Overall the LF6300 series TV’s are quite impressive- solid with great picture quality with clarity, superior contrast, vibrant colours and amazing brightness offered at a reasonable low to mid price level considering all the features it offers, including same magic remote and same Smart functionality of more expensive models, very decent picture and sound and LG is one of the best brands in the world. It comes with a limited 1 year warranty for parts and labour by the manufacturer.
